The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of April 26, 2017.
Montreux (Lake Geneva)
This is a Paula’s challenge (Lost in Translation) to take a colour photo and change it to Black and White in post processing.
Paula at Lost in Translation presented us a challenge: Traces of the past Y3-04.
I decided to post this photo taken in Spain (2014/12/13), “ El Castillo de Pelegrina” is a Spanish castle built between the twelfth and thirteenth centuries near the small town of Pelegrina, very close to the Siguenza, is well known for its famous Barranco del Rio Dulce. Unfortunately this Castle is in bad condition and in risk of disappearance.
Paula at Lost in Translation presented us a challenge: “It’s time for another Black & White Sunday, this time with the theme: THROUGH“.
This photo was taken in Paris on Sunday, April 17th, 2016 17:23.
“In 1515, Francis I was asked to build a bridge over the small branch of the Seine in order to carry patients to the Hôtel-Dieu hospital on the Île de la Cité. Construction began in 1626 and in 1634 the two sides were connected.
The Pont au Double derives its name from the toll amount which was charged, a “double” denier, money used to pay for the construction of the bridge.
In 1709, the bridge collapsed. It was rebuilt and remained in place until 1847. In 1883, the Pont au Double was replaced by a one arch cast-iron bridge.”
